Hi. My name is Alex Cecilio. I'm a graphic artist and I'm going to show you how to make choppy waves in Photoshop. So I've got my basic ocean, oceanic image right now, just like half color half clouds. So what I'm actually going to do is I'm going to use a paint, you use a paintbrush and I'm going to use a brush under, when you go to your brushes, there's this little arrow right here, click that and go all the way to the bottom, and select wet media brushes, and you say OK. And I'm going to use this brush right here. And I'm actually going to use my mouse for this one. And this will help just get that kind of raising wave kind of feeling because choppy waves happen because the, well the choppy waves happen because the waves are like really strong and like pushing up against one another like really heavily and it's usually thrusting upward like I'm drawing. So, I'm just going to do that. And I'm going to play around with a couple of other brushes just to see what there is like that. But not that, OK. Stick to this other one. OK. So now we've got that. So now you can go to filter and actually go to distort and do ocean ripple. And this is going to make it look rippled I guess like from, like in the ocean. And you can really play around with your options here. I'd say don't make it too too choppy. Or sorry, don't make it like, don't do that because you won't be able to see it. So just do that and there you've got your choppy ocean waves. My name is Alex and this is how you make choppy waves in Photoshop.Thank you.
